Eric Pepin received his BSEE from the University of Washington (UW) in 2012, and decided to stay at
UW, as well as with the FAST Lab, to pursue his MSEE/Ph.D. in electrical engineering. Eric’s interests are
in interfacing technologies between nature and electronics, specifically those involving analog/mixed-
signal integrated circuits (ICs), biomedical instrumentation, and digital signal processing. Currently,
Eric is working on a project that’s a collaborative effort between the FAST Lab and the multidisciplinary
NSF Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE), also here at UW. Specifically, the project is
concerned with developing a standard-CMOS, low-power neural stimulator IC for applications in brain-
computer interfaces and CSNE test-bed equipment.
